. . COMMENTS FROM DR. SCOTT TEKTIC is familiar with the need for involvement of individuals

TEKTIC is familiar with the need for involvement of individuals and communities in decision-making processes, and several TEKTIC members already research or actively practice various aspects of public engagement. Mid-morning we will have an opportunity to learn from several TEKTIC researchers and their colleagues. Michal Fedeles will explain how actually involving patients early in the process of ICT implementation, helping them understand how ICTs are – or could be – used, can be empowering and lead to the public becoming advocates for appropriate technology use. Sandra Jarvis- Selinger will describe research that is helping to understand the respectful processes and active participation needed to introduce Community Learning Centres into Aboriginal and First Nations communities to promote community health, and to then assess their impact. This session will close with Kendall Ho Helen Novak Lauscher showcasing how TEKTIC was able to contribute to an extension of an existing study (iCON – Chinese On-Line Health Network) through actively engaging the local Chinese community in the design of a personal health record portal, while learning important lessons about the value and generalisability of this approach.

We will conclude the workshop with a facilitated discussion. The workshop used the term ‘healthy engage- ment’ as a deliberate double entendre – we wish to engage the public around ‘healthy’ related issues, and to have a positive outcome we need the engagement itself to be ‘healthy’. While we can – and are – learning from other settings, we need a collective understanding of answers to “who, why, what, where, when …. and how” . To do this, the tables will be turned. Questions will be asked of the audience to tease out the an - swers. Your participation in the workshop begins to answer ‘who’, and the experts will have explained ‘why’. But ‘what’ do we wish to achieve, ‘where’ are we headed, ‘when’ do we need to get there, and most impor- tantly ‘how’ are we going to do this? So many questions come to mind. Do we need or want to engage every-

one, or do we need to focus on aging baby-boomers or perhaps Generation Y? (“Generation Y”, the largest generation since the boomers, are growing rapidly; by 2014 - just 5 years from now - there will be nearly 63M Generation Y employees in the workforce, while the number of baby boomers will drop to less than 48M). And when we embark on ‘healthy engagement’ with the public - just how much do we tell? (Too little and we are considered patronising or to be hiding something; but too much and we are likely to confuse; staged

engagement may sound tempting, but that becomes complex and costly.) Tempting though such questions are, we will focus instead on creating a roadmap to guide our journey to healthy public engagement, seeking to identify key ‘signs’ to guide, roadblocks to avoid, and perhaps opportunities to travel paths less trod!

PATIENT ENGAGEMENT PROJECTS

TEKTIC Project #1:

Engaging Patients and the Community:

(e)Literacy for Better Health

Presenters:

Dr. Michal Fedeles & Katherine Wisener

Information and communication technologies (ICT) play a crucial role in facilitating quality health care, education, and research. The first two phases of this project are comprised of: (1) a needs assessment with the public to understand their technical literacy around health; (2) three interactive sessions providing participants with resources and training on how to search for health information online. Phase three builds upon the model developed from the first two phases and extends its reach to Aboriginal communities. It will focus on applying the interactive sessions to community-based health professionals, non-health professionals and research leads, who can then build capacity in their communities by making

information available to community members. We hope that these sessions will enhance the public’s digital literacy in both urban and rural settings, ultimately contributing to health and well-being.

TEKTIC Project #2:

Community Learning Centres (CLC)

Presenter:

Dr. Sandra Jarvis-Selinger

The Ktunaxa Community Learning Centres (KCLC) project is a three year CIHR funded initiative that evaluates the design and implementation of four Community Learning Centres (CLC) in British Columbia’s Ktunaxa Nation. Each CLC was created to provide community members and community health professionals with culturally relevant health information and resources. Community-based research and technical personnel currently support day-to-day operations, create and connect

with health resources, and collect/analyze outcome and process data at each learning centre. Funding from TEKTIC has enabled CLC to expand to new Aboriginal communities and has also allowed researchers to host other community engagement events such as the KCLC Music Workshop.
